Giving value to sustainability

Valuing the sustainable approach to make us part of all those companies that invest in the future, especially in the energy field.

Today’s sectors must implement activities that ensure environmental sustainability, such as saving energy, recycling materials used for production, and limiting water use.

Keyword? Concreteness.

The ecological transition cannot be only based on intentions, concrete actions are needed, especially by companies which play a key role in the fight against climate change.

At the core of any successful business that wants to stand out and have a sustainable approach are certainly energy efficiency and renewable energies, with which making a difference will really be possible.

It is essential for a company to be concrete in order to value sustainable conversion choices and not fall into simple and trivial green washing actions.

Energy efficiency

Workmec has recently made two major investments.

The first concerns the project to install 200 photovoltaic modules on the entire roof of the Italian headquarters, which will allow an annual production of 220,000 to 180,000 kW.

The second investment is related to the total renovation of the lighting system with LED or energy-saving lights.

Thanks to the captured energy of the solar installations, a coverage of about 60% of the total consumption will be guaranteed and a reduction in annual consumption of at least 20% thanks to the new lighting system.

Sustainable packaging

For the green conversion of a company, it is essential to pay attention to every business process, from production to product shipment.
Sustainable packaging is designed without neglecting its protective functions by choosing a recyclable material and avoiding waste of the same.

Workmec always uses recyclable packaging, with the support of CONAI – Consorzio nazionale Imballaggi. Thanks to this collaboration based on the payment of an annual contribution, the consortium offers support in the separate collection and recycling of packaging waste.

Everyone can make a difference

The issue of sustainability concerns everyone, from individuals to big corporations.

Everyone can make a difference by making conscious everyday choices like driving an electric car.

Almost 50% of Workmec employees own an electric car, which they can safely recharge at our premises. This has resulted in a reduction of fuel costs by about half.

Automation to support a sustainable approach

Automation today is a solution that allows lower energy consumption and reduces polluting emissions from production, thanks to the optimization of industrial processes.

Workmec’s intelligent and programmable automation machines have made a significant reduction in waste materials possible, as well as time and cost savings.
